Cat.No. KIT 048
An ELISA for the in-vitro determination of human NGAL monomer in urine, EDTA plasma and Li-Heparin plasma.
Human monomer NGAL (neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin)
A clinical research study have shown that monomer NGAL is the predominant molecular form of NGAL in a mixed ICU population (1)
A clinical research study have shown, that in patients suffering from sepsis, the monomer form of NGAL is the predominant and hence that both monomer and total NGAL are both excellent biomarkers for AKI (2).
